Everything Everywhere (EE) has revealed how much customers will be paying for 4G mobile broadband when its new service launches later this month.

Orange and T-Mobile customers wishing to use the ultra-fast service will pay between £15.99 and £35.99 a month for mobile broadband, depending on contract plan and data allowance.

EE said its pricing and plans were "designed for 21st century consumers and businesses alike".

EE will offer 18-month and two-year mobile broadband plans. Under the 18-month plan, users will pay £15.99 for a 2GB connection, £20.99 for 3GB and £25.99 for 5GB.

Those taking out a two-year contract will pay £25.99 a month for 2GB, £30.99 a month for 3GB and 35.99 a month for 5GB. On top of this, users under both plans can also pay £6 to enjoy an extra 500MB and £15 for an extra 3GB.

4G will be launched in the UK in ten cities on October 30th by EE, Orange and T-Mobile's parent company, delivering speeds up to five times faster than 3G.

Users will be able to download and stream music and videos easily while on the go, with a standard definition movie taking just 10-15 minutes to download.

EE is also launching a new fixed-line fibre service for homes and offices, with speeds typically ten times faster than current standard broadband plans.

EE said its plans "put the customer in control" by combining a range of data options with unlimited UK calls and texts.

Whichever plan a customer chooses, a warning text will alert them once 80 per cent of their monthly data allowance has been used up, with another once it has all been used.

They can then choose to buy a data add-on, or wait until the next bill period starts.

4G customers will be able to download or stream one film each week without eating into their data allowance as part of EE's Film service.

Further films can be downloaded or streamed with prices starting at 79p. Costs will be charged to customers’ mobile bill, or credit and debit cards.

The service, which offers 2-for-1 cinema ticketing, listings, trailers and film downloads or streaming, will have more than 700 films available in total at launch.

Customers will be able to watch a film on their mobile, PC or on their TV, via a laptop. A Pause & Play feature will allow users to view a film on once device, pause it, then resume watching it on another.

The 4G service will initially be available in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester. By Christmas, the rollout will have extended to Belfast, Derby, Hull, Nottingham and Newcastle.

Olaf Swantee, EE chief executive, said: "We’re proud to be leading the way and pioneering the rollout of 4G in the UK.

"With our new new brand and unique 4G and Fibre services, we will deliver consumers and businesses across the country next-generation services and a superior level of support."
